We have a new pattern out today and she’s already become our new spring staple!
Let us introduce you to the Ella Blouse!
The Ella Blouse (previously known as the Wrap Blouse) is the perfect little companion to any outfit.
An adorable waist-length top, Ella wraps across the front and secures in place with long ties. The side seams gently pleat into the tie at the waist for a flattering fit, while the 3/4 length kimono sleeves elegantly add interest.
It looks great worn over a dress as a summer cover-up, or on its own paired with a high-waist.
Made in a plain fabric Ella is smart and chic for the office, whereas in a patterned fabric she shines as a cute little going-out number. Think lightweight fabrics with lots of drape for this pattern, such as rayon and georgette.
We’ve put together a collection of specially-curated fabrics just right for the Ella Blouse on our online shop, if you’d like some help choosing.
The Ella Blouse is the perfect project for beginner, intermediate and advanced dressmakers alike – a versatile wardrobe piece that is both simple yet interesting to sew.
